  • This is the Aston Martin DB4GT (S/N 0110/R) raced by Ian Dalglish at the Goodwood Revival and shot here in the paddock on the Friday morning.

    The Aston Martin DB4GT was designed for the Grand Touring class of the World Sports Car Championship, and is actually 5 inches shorter than the DB4, and is constructed using aluminium panels built onto a supporting tubular frame. This helps reduce the weight of the car down to 1,130kg.

    This car was raced at the Le Mans Classic in 2014, with Ian Dalglish and Joe Twyman piloting the car through some pretty damp conditions and were hampered by being given a three minute penalty, dropping them out of contention.

    You can see this car in action at the Le Mans Classic in the following YouTube video, the Aston is the first car to make an appearance:
